GE Next Generation Award winners to compete for new category at the main 2015 GE Awards

Ground Engineering is pleased to announce that the winners of each of the seven categories at the 2014 GE Next Generation Awards will go forward to compete to become an overall winner at the main 2015 GE Awards.

Entries for the GE Next Generation Awards are open until 5 September and the winners will be announced at a special event in London on 13 November.

The GE Next Generation Awards aims to celebrate the range of skills needed to support the growing ground engineering market and to find the top performers across academia, apprenticeships, ground investigation, geoenvironmental engineering, as well as geotechnics. Full details of the event – and the entry forms – can be found at

Each of the winners will be invited back to compete for the GE Rising Star award which will be presented at the main GE Awards which is due to be held at a lunchtime event at the Hilton Park Lane in London on 10 June 2015.

“The aim of presenting the Rising Star Award is to ensure skills stay at the top of the agenda in our industry throughout the year and we continue to celebrate those that can be held up as an inspiration to others,” said GE editor Claire Smith. “I hope that each of our winners – and also the runners up – will use their titles to go out into schools to promote and highlight the opportunities that a career in the ground engineering business can deliver.”
